Healthy Meals Your Kids Will Actually Eat
In today’s post: Find 25 healthy meals for kids that they’ll actually want to eat! These are easy meal ideas your whole family will love. Find lightened up versions of classic kid foods, like chicken fingers and mac and cheese, kid-friendly soups and salads, and dinners that make it easy to pack in the vegetables.
This teriyaki chicken stir fry contains ingredients my kids wouldn’t eat separately (hey there broccoli and carrots), but once everything is cooked together in a tasty sauce, all the kids loved it!
11. Cauliflower strikes again – this time as a substitute for potatoes in a low carb loaded chowder that tastes surprisingly like your favorite cream of potato soup.
12. Even my young kids love the taste of sweet potatoes, and they’re higher in nutrients than regular old potatoes. Clever topping substitutions make these loaded baked sweet potatoes extra tasty without lots of added calories. Top with avocado and peppers for even more goodness.
13. If your kids like scrambled eggs, they’ll like frittatas – and they’re great for adding veggies (try chopped spinach – you can hardly taste it)!
14. Looking for the ultimate way to add more veggies? Try this hidden veggie pasta sauce. It’s a hearty meat and tomato sauce flavored with garlic and onion…that also happens to be full of pureed vegetables! Make a big batch and keep some on the freezer for easy weeknight meals.
Kid Friendly Soups And Salads
Stews and soups are the easiest way to get veggies in my kids’ diet – since the vegetables cook soft and take on the flavor of the meal as a whole they go down a whole lot easier. Plus I’ve found a few kid friendly salad recipes that pack so much flavor the kids don’t care that they’re eating lettuce.
15. I can’t wait to try this vegetable tomato basil chicken stew! It starts with cooked chicken and canned beans so you can make it on the stove in under half an hour.
16. My older kids are finally realizing that salads can be delicious! This colorful Thai chicken salad has a peanut butter based dressing that kids will love – allowing you to sneak in extra veggies.
17. Chicken tortilla soup is a classic for good reason: tons of flavor, lots of nutrition, super low in calories. Add a couple tortilla chips on the top to make it extra delicious.
18. Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup seems like it’s going to be full of calories, but it’s not! It’s one of the best kid friendly dinners I’ve ever tasted.
19. Store-bought dressings can be so bad for you that they defeat the purpose of eating a salad, so I’m looking forward to trying this taco salad with easy homemade catalina dressing. You can make it with seasoned ground beef or turkey!
20. This healthy and delicious soup has all the flavors of lasagne with considerably less calories and fat, plus it includes veggies! Try vegetable lasagne soup.

Slow-Cooker Braised Beef with Carrots & Turnips
The spice blend in this healthy beef stew recipe–cinnamon, allspice and cloves–may conjure images of apple pie, but the combo is a great fit in savory applications too. Serve over creamy polenta or buttered whole-wheat egg noodles.

Slow-Cooker Vegetarian Chili
Grab your crock pot for this delicious and easy slow-cooker vegetarian chili with beans, fire-roasted tomatoes, bell peppers and sweet potatoes. The recipe requires just 20 minutes of active time: after a bit of chopping, you just dump the ingredients in the slow cooker and let it do the work. Adding a squeeze of lime juice and a sprinkle of cilantro just before serving brightens up the flavors. Top it with some shredded cheese, if you’d like, or serve it as-is to keep it vegan. Either way, this healthy chili is sure to become a go-to when you want a satisfying and healthy dinner.

Kale, Wild Rice & Chicken Stew
Chicken thighs get perfectly tender in just a few hours in the slow cooker. Plus, cooking everything together low and slow infuses all the flavors together for complexity in every bite.

Slow-Cooker Brisket & Onions over Buttery Mashed Potatoes
This brisket is seasoned with tangy mustard, sweet turbinado sugar and pungent garlic. Substitute brown sugar for the turbinado, if desired, and use the tube variety of tomato paste so any leftovers stay fresh longer. We recommend serving this braised beef over mashed potatoes, but it’d be just as delicious over rice, spaghetti squash or pasta.

Lentil & Root Veggie Soup
French green lentils and black lentils hold up well to long, slow cooking without becoming mushy. Save the rinds from used-up blocks of Parmesan in a resealable plastic bag or tightly sealed container in the refrigerator. They give soup broths a rich, savory flavor.

Slow-Cooker Chicken with Rosemary & Mushrooms over Linguine
The classic pairing of shallots and mushrooms gives this easy slow-cooker chicken recipe a timeless quality that’s sure to please everyone at your table. Swirling the stock and flour together at the beginning is a pro tip for creating a thick sauce that moistens the final dish and helps all the ingredients come together.

Slow-Cooker Indian Lamb & Butternut Squash Stew
We call for lamb shoulder because it’s tougher than other cuts and holds up well throughout the long cook time. If you can’t find shoulder, use boneless leg of lamb in this slow-cooker butternut squash stew.
